Here’s a health care story that blew my mind. I’m still reeling thinking about it…can you imagine?

“New Jersey surgeons removed a rapidly growing, 51-pound  cancerous tumor from a woman who had delayed treatment for more than a month until she became eligible for health insurance, her doctor said on Tuesday.

"She was a skinny lady with a huge belly. I mean it looked like she was literally pregnant with triplets," said Dr. David Dupree, who led the surgery on the 65-year-old woman, at Riverview Medical Centre in Red Bank, New Jersey.” (source)
